As some others pointed out, don't use "insmod" - modprobe is the way to
add (and remove, with -r) kernel modules so that dependencies are

Now, AFAIK the kernel modules are there to allow _incoming_ ftp, not
outgoing, ie you can have an FTP server behind your firewall.  For
FTP clients behind the firewall, simply turn on passive mode in the ftp
client.  If their ftp client does not support passive mode, get one that
does (there's heaps available, many are free).  This is independent of
having any ftp modules loaded.
